Game Chat – Brisbane vs Geelong

Written by Father Dougal on July 8 2017

Venue: The Gabba, Saturday, July 8, 7.25pm AEST 

Last Time They Met: R22, 2016, Geelong 19.15 (129) d Brisbane Lions 10.9 (69) at the Gabba
R3, 2016, Geelong 18.17 (125) d Brisbane Lions 7.14 (56) at Simonds Stadium
R18, 2015, Geelong 17.11 (113) d Brisbane Lions 8.9 (57) at Simonds Stadium
R23, 2014, Geelong 21.17 (143) d Brisbane Lions 12.9 (81) at Simonds Stadium
R2, 2014, Geelong 13.15 (93) d Brisbane Lions 10.8 (68) at the Gabba


Game notes: On paper this match looks pretty one-sided, but since coming back from the bye a month ago, the Brisbane Lions have been more than feisty and should give the Cats a test. Chris Fagan’s men have won two of their past four matches – including Sunday’s incredible last quarter revival to down Essendon – and shown good signs in losses to Port Adelaide and GWS. Dayne Zorko and Tom Rockliff have been prolific in the midfield, while the Lions’ young talent, led by Eric Hipwood, Harris Andrews and Hugh McCluggage, has added some class and excitement. Geelong is coming off a draw to the Giants and spent the week on the Gold Coast rather than returning to Victoria. They will likely have too many weapons, but don’t be shocked if the Lions give some cheek.

Father Dougal’s Tip: Geelong by 10

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

  3. Wheres the delete my team button. Ive had enough of this season. Full Premo team? yea right only premos ive got are danger and doch. The rest can get stuffed with there shit scores and late withdrawals.

    Sorry for the Rant …..


  4. I just realised I forgot to trade in Witherden. Reversed yesterday just to wait an see final teams. I’m actually speechless….


  5. Zac bro, So far Tuohy and Mackie dont make me feel like I have a full premium team either.
    I had last night the bulldog boys: Wallis , Dalhaus and Liberatore who didn’t even crack 70…Weird year in SC 2017. lets just relax and let it enfold..


    1. Yea its the same for most this year. Impossible year to read and know whats going on. Thats for outside of supercoach as well!


      1. Given the way things are going for so many people, we should probably have a weekly ‘2018 plans’ thread on this site from here on out.


        1. Need Parsons to get at least a ton to make up for so much crap earlier today. Had the V/c on JPK and he’s a late out. Treloar, Adams, Heeney, Lloyd, Newman, Lynch and now Trade-in Dusty playing in a 92-10 first half smashing. No tons there, only one 90.

  7. Parsons has outscored Sam Jacobs; I can now officially say that I should have waited a week to replace Sandilands. Oh well.


  8. With Greenwood out i have Parsons on the field. One of the only things to go right this weekend with JPK and Howe late outs to go with plenty of Premo flops.
    Will hold breath for his 2nd half score though.


  9. Uh oh. I’ve just realised that I haven’t left myself with any loophole options for the remainder of the round – meaning that I can’t have Dangerfield (VC) as my captain.
